I do not like to go away and have things unfinished. So, I am packed and ready to go, but there is one bit of unfinished business. I had planned to take really beautiful and staged pictures of the finds I had at auction and a yard sale last week. But time just got away and weather did not permit. So that it doesn’t go unshared, I thought I would quickly show you some very unstaged pictures, taken with a flash with my point and shoot because my good camera is already packed. So here you go…
This bowl is actually for my mother-in-law, she has a lot of pieces to this collection. I am thinking of trying to make a centerpiece out of it for her.
I found another box of some fun pewter pieces.
Not my style, but I have a really fun idea for this little house.
Some hardware and handles and quite a bit of silver plate which I have some more fun ideas for…
This jewelry is mostly junk, but there is actually some really cool stuff in there that with a little tweaking, I might actually wear. Stay tuned..Also, there as some great clips that they referred to as belt buckles but I think they might actually be for scarves. I am thinking there might be some ornament projects in there… And then a box of old books.
4 great old shutters…
The fan and enamelware teapot…
A great old clock that she says still works but I have not tried yet.
Three nice smaller sized washboards.
I always forget what those wooden things are called and what I thought was a nice old silver plate tray. Funny thing is it says Pottery Barn on the back.
A fun sign and a small ladder.
A nice small chest that just needs some hardware change-ups.
That is the group, all in all a pretty good week of treasure hunting.
I can’t even believe I am saying this, but I am off to Paris! Bon Jour!
